We visited the South Carolina State House on February 23, 2009. We learned all about the history of the State House. Did you know the State House was burned down twice, and shot by cannon fire six times? We had the opportunity to visit the Senate and the House of Representatives while on a tour inside the State House. Unfortunately, they were not in session so we didn’t see any action. We did see, however, the beautiful artwork inside, and we went on a scavenger hunt on the State House grounds. During the scavenger hunt we learned a whole lot more about our state’s history. We even saw a time capsule that will be opened in 2036 to mark the 250th anniversary of the State House. We figured out that we will be 35 and 36 when it is opened! Ms. McCuen will be 55!!! We had a great time on our trip and we hope you enjoy the pictures we took while we were there. Thank you to Alex’s mom for some of these gorgeous shots.
